Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) refers to processes other than litigation for resolving disputes, such as mediation, arbitration, and neutral evaluation. Many contracts, such as consumer contracts, labor agreements, and business arrangements, require or permit the parties to submit their disputes to an ADR process. Some contracts specify the agency (such as the American Arbitration Association) that will administer the process, and the rules that will govern the process. Courts generally require parties to a lawsuit to employ an ADR process before their case reaches trial.
